LibriVox recording of Idle Days in Patagonia by William Henry Hudson.
Read in English by Kevin W. Davidson.
Hudson traveled to Patagonia to study the birds, but shortly upon arrival accidentally shot himself in the knee, requiring a lengthy period of idleness to recover, hence the title of the book. It's not just a work of ornithology, but a personal memoir of the people and natural history of Patagonia. (Summary by Kevin Davidson)
